Year 4 ideas

In Year 4 we discussed ideas..

Hassan and Taslima with Casey thought that one at a time the Iron Man and the dragon could go in freezing cold ice water.

The Iron man and the dragon could go skydiving, and the first one to touch the ground could win, with only the use of a parachute.

They could both go running,a long distance, with traps along the way, or carry something which is extremely heavy. They could jump somewhere too.

Around the World Non-Uniform Day

On Friday June 13th, The Ferns will be celebrating the start of the World Cup by holding an Around the World Non-Uniform day. Children (and staff!) can come to school dressed in a costume inspired by any country in the world – it does not have to be a country taking part in the World Cup.

So you might want to wear the national costume of your country or any country you like, or alternatively you can wear the colours of the flag of your chosen country – e.g. red, white and blue for the UK, France and many others; green, white and red for Italy and so on.

School Council, who have organised this, are asking all children to bring £1 on the day. There will be prizes for the most imaginative costume in each class, so get thinking!

If parents or children need ideas or inspiration, please speak to your child’s teacher after half term or type “Around the World dressing up ideas for children” into your search engine. We look forward to celebrating the World Cup in colourful style at The Ferns!!
